I ran over an orange cone in the parking lot last night as I was leaving work. I had no idea it was under my car until it flew out while I was on Enterprise and into a construction zone where it 'just-so-happened' to sit itself straight back up in line with all the other orange cones. Needless to say, it worked out well.
On my way back to work this afternoon, that same cone was on the side of road, sitting on top some sort of electrical unit, displaying its road marks proudly. So okay: it didn't work out as well as I had thought.
I felt somewhat shameful.
The new job is going very well. I only work 20 hours this week which is split up into three 4-hour shifts and one 8-hour shift. Much to my surprise, I find myself actually enjoying talking to people over the phone - especially when they have British accents. I may or may not have shown some creeper-status symptoms by remembering the name of the British man I spoke with this evening. He ordered an Italian wool Ludlow three-button suit jacket with center vent (size 36) and matching Italian wool Ludlow pant (size 31/32, uncuffed) in heather charcoal.
Ah! I know, I know...so I remembered more than just his name....(he lives in New York City......on Broadway......and he needed his suit over-nighted because he was 'leaving the country'. I might have waived his shipping & handling).
I have a good memory is all. That's all I'm getting at. No Sleepless in Seattle here. Or facebook stalking.
He's probably super lame anyhow.
I had the chance to have a meeting with one of my Bible professors this morning whom I highly, highly admire. We talked about a ton of different things: Greek, hermeneutics, 1 Timothy 2:15, gender roles, teaching, ministry, the differences between 'boys', 'guys', and 'men', dating/courting (oh, semantics), and possible seminary choices (I'm leaning towards Southeastern, but we'll see).
Oh, yeah. We talked about my research paper too.
I'm excited to write it. Yeah. I said it. Excited.
Maybe I can do this whole college thing afterall.
Until next time,
